I just made it and it was so simple the directions were super easy to follow. I plan to give birthday presents,
a-la gift cards and cash in origami wallets from now on.

These rock! I'm totally trying it. Just one question. Do laminate the paper (or cover it w/ packing tape) and then do the origami? Or do u do s/t else.

i just sat here at my computer and did this with fabric... it was really hard... so i put clear tape on one side so the folds would hold more... then used double sided tape to hold it all together... i didnt have ribbon that matched so i used the double sided tape and some of the fabric and made crappy ribbon... eh it did the job... but all and all im pretty happy with i turned out with... thanks for the info

for the ones there, i folded first, then covered the whole thing clear packaging tape. Then, i took a knife and made slits in the tape where the pockets are supposed to be

but...

i recently have been experimenting with waterproofing paper and such for origami vases ... and if you use spray adhesive and put saran wrap on both sides -- its pretty sturdy and its waterproof! (i havent tried this on the wallets but it works wonders with vases.)

try starching the fabric w/ stiffy (?) the fabric origami site says that it'll hold creases just like paper

I just made a really ugly one out of lined paper just to try it.  Worked out great!  Now I must make some pretty paper to use!  Thanks so much!

"screw the publishing company" is not a very mature philosophy, because the people you are really screwing are the author of that book (Gay Merrill Gross) and the creator of that design, whose name you omit to mention, and whose permission you choose not to seek. That creator would be me.

In the origami world, you won't find anyone more willing to share their work (see www.nickrobinson.info/origami) but it's common courtsey, not to mention a legal requirement, to get permission before (re)publishing copyrighted material.

It's an old thread, so you may not read this, but I hope others do and think twice before screwing poeple, as it were.

a great idea. I had some issues with the directions cause I suck at folding but the one I made out of gold foil paper that I gave to my friend was very well recieved.
